Welcome to the Falcon Gallery! Today’s Falcon Feature comes from Marvel Premiere #49. It’s the Falcon’s very first full length adventure! Sure, Falcon’s buddy Captain America shows up — but he’s clearly a supporting character. Sam Wilson is the main man here. Plus, his friend Red Wing: the bird sharing a telepathic link with Falcon. While we really like some of the recent interpretations of The Falcon, writers sometimes seem oblivious to the cool factor of having a telepathic link with your own raptor. Get with it, guys!

If you get to the last page and see the ad for the Alice Cooper issue — guess what? We posted it for you.
